Mother of the groom.

Traditionally the mother of the groom has an easy time. After all she is not paying for the wedding, or organising anything unless she volunteers to do so. She can therefore be totally indulgent and spoil herself when looking for the perfect outfit. Like the mother of the bride, the groom’s mother must look fantastic.

Keeping within the chosen atmosphere of the wedding, but not forgetting her own colour preferences the mother of the groom can spend shopping time with friends, but make sure that they are friends that do not put her into an ‘old’ category by persuading her to choose an old fashioned outfit. You dress to please yourself, not to please your friends – take advice if you respect their judgement, but be careful of the kind of friend that is outdated in her thinking – even daughters can be a problem, expecting their mother to ‘look her age’.

Something floaty and feminine is less aging, something pretty enough to show off the best bits and clever enough in the cut to hide the parts that cause concern. If you are short – wear long – it will make you look taller and thinner. If you have fabulous ankles – show them off. There is no reason why a mother of the groom cannot show a pretty cleavage.

An outfit that is not too restricting is better for a busy day partying. The mother of the groom has to look cool, sophisticated and lovely all day long and that is not easy in an outfit that is too tight on the body. Fabric that moulds around the body cleverly enough to give a slim look without the restrictions normally associated with tight straight skirts, darts and hard waist bands which can become uncomfortably when sitting down for too long at the wedding breakfast.

An uncluttered flattering neckline echoes the shape of the elegant and flexible silk two piece evening outfit underneath, which can be worn without the coat for a less formal occasion.

Bride’s Mother outfit petite to plus size

Today’s mother of the bride is young, vibrant and glamorous. She does not want to look like her own mother did at her wedding wearing the traditional suit, hat and matching handbag. It is, in fact, the bride’s mother’s party as much as it being her daughter’s special day. This is one of the few occasions when family and friends of all generations gather to celebrate the wedding and is therefore a day for everyone to enjoy.

These days the bride’s mother’s outfit does not have to stay in the wardrobe with no-where else to go. The outfit should be loved so much that it is worn out to many occasions. If you feel good in something, do not be afraid to wear it many times and ignore comments like: ‘isn’t that the outfit you wore to ….?’ Then your response should be that you love it.

The bride’s mother’s outfit should be flexible enough to be dressed up or dressed down – and on the day can easily move from the daytime formality of a church ceremony through to an informal evening party or dressed with some interesting sparkling jewellery with a light chiffon over-blouse it will transform into a decorative evening dress.

The bride’s mother can wear her cherished outfit to the wedding of a friend, or for an anniversary party. If a gold, silver or gem colour, such as a ruby or sapphire blue, has been chosen, then it will be a stunning outfit to wear to a significant wedding anniversary party.

Abergavenny is known as “The Gateway to Wales” and is at the start of the Brecon Beacons and the Brecon Beacons National Park. The M4 motorway makes all the South of England and home counties accessible to this unique bustling market town, vibrant in its diversity. Abergavenny is in South East Wales – not far from Cardiff, Bristol, Bath, Hereford, Newport and Swansea. There are very good rail and road links with the West Midlands, Birmingham, Oxford and the West Country (Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Avon and Cornwall). From London the route is easy and direct – crossing the new Severn Bridge is an experience in itself – a wonderful giant sculpture particularly spectacular agaist dark clouds or early evening or the low light of dawn.

Abergavenny is also at the hub of many famous events – the Abergavenny Food Festival now a ‘must’ on everybody’s calendar who is interested in the culture of food. With so many things to do and see, it is worth taking time to explore the area – even Harry Potter’s bus stopped at Abergavenny! It makes a great centre from which to explore the area, such as a day in Usk, famous for its wonderful floral displays throughout the town. Or perhaps a walk over the famous Blorenge Mountain – the only word that rhymes with ‘orange’! The Llanfoist Open Garden day is worth a visit – a day spent exploring the wonderful gardens of the village makes an unusual and inspiring ‘day out’.

The Brecon Jazz Festival is only twenty miles away as is the Celtic Manor Hotel in Newport which has several golf courses and was the host to the Ryder Cup in the year 2010. The internationally famous ‘Hay Literary Festival’, Hay Literary Festival held at Hay on Wye, attracts many famous visitors including Bill and Hilary Clinton, who were guests at the 2002 festival. ‘The Three Choirs Festival’ (Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester) – a celebration of choral music, is only an hour’s drive away. Abergavenny is in the heart of the county of Monmouthshire, a county that has more castles and fortified houses than any other county in Britain.

For industrial history there is the famous ‘Big Pit’ Mining Museum in Blaenavon as well as the most glorious countryside where walking, horse-riding, both lake and canal boating, fishing – country activities too numerous to remember them all.

As a contrast to the gentle countryside, Cardiff, with its Millennium Stadium and Millennium Centre provide entertainment in sport and culture in the most modern and sophisticated of surroundings in Cardiff Bay, once a busy dock area, now home to the contrasts of high profile modern living alongside the historic Norwegian Church and the new Assembly building. St Fagans Museum is a major museum of Welsh Life a worthwhile day out for those interested in social history.

There are a number of places to stay from the exotic and luxurious hotel – Llangoed Hall (the inspiration of Sir Bernard Ashley: co-founder of the Laura Ashley fashion label) – to Bear Hotel in Crickhowell (winner of the British Pub of the Year Award as well as the AA Welsh Pub of the Year). Gliffaes Country House Hotel’ is only five miles from the town and is set in over twenty acres of beautiful gardens. The hotel is on the banks of the river Usk, famous for its salmon and trout fishing. Extensive fishing rights on the river can be used by hotel guests. ‘The Angel Hotel’ has an excellent dining menu. There are many other places to stay and eat fine food. For those who want a few days of luxurious pampering there is the Celtic Manor Hotel. Here can be enjoyed the hotel’s award winning spa, gymnasium, golf, tennis and several restaurants as well as a little bit of shopping.
